how long have you been a malia mills maven + what do you do?
i’ve worked for malia mills since 2010! i started working as a fit specialist at the store on mulberry street in nyc and found my way out to california about three years ago. now i manage both the marin and palo alto stores. i also help out with merchandising and lots of other stuff. most of us here at mm wear many hats.
what is something about you most people don't know?
while i love the beach, i am terrified of the ocean. i am definitely a land gal.
what is something about malia mills that most people don't know?
babies and dogs adore her. i mean, who wouldn't?!
what is a travel must-have you can't live without?
definitely my dog, tweak. she goes everywhere with me and loves traveling -- especially waltzing through the airport like she owns the place. if i ever travel without her, i feel like half of my body is missing!
car? train? plane? bike? hike? other?
hike for sure. i have developed such a love for hiking since moving to northern california. my house is surrounded by loads of trails and open space to explore, however, i do love having a few glasses of wine on the red eye from sfo to jfk.
where is your favorite place to rock a malia mills swimsuit?
i rock my suits at beaches and swimming holes all summer long, but my favorite place i ever rocked a suit would definitely be the grateful dead 50th anniversary show in chicago on the 4th of july! i wore a “red hills” vamp with these killer striped white pants and a really rad blue beaded choker.
what is your favorite malia mills piece?
wow, what a hard question. working here almost 7 years, i have LOTS of favorites. i think my favorite ready to wear piece would be a tie between the swish and the soiree. my favorite bikini is definitely the vamp/sweet okole combo. i think anyone who looks at my instagram could guess that.
what is the newest bit a of malia mills magic you need next?
fill in the blank: I feel groovy in my swimsuit.
